The Giants have every right to feel good about themselves following last week's dominating defensive performance against the Bears. On Sunday, the defense will be?called upon once again, this time to stop a Texans team that has one of the better offensive squads in the league. From the Daily News:
After ransacking the Bears' pass-happy attack with 10 sacks against Mike Martz's swiss cheese line, the Giants take on what defensive coordinator Perry Fewell calls the most balanced offense they have faced so far. The Texans average 415.5 yards per game behind quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson (game-time decision)?but it all starts with a precision rushing attack that averages 172 yards a game.That rushing attack is led by Arian Foster, who?is tops in the NFL in rushing (134.3 yards per game), total yards from scrimmage (172.3) and first downs gained (35). Houston is averaging 27 points a game, but they've also given up, on average,?25.5 points and 408 total yards (last in the NFL).
